Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Poured up on tap at De Molen with deep dark mahogany body supporting a tan head and leaving behind full sheet lacing. The aroma offers up rich raisin, prune and date notes as well as some brown sugar, dark roasted malts and chocolate that is off in the background. The taste has dark roasted malts and some chocolate moving into firm prune and date like sweet dark fruity ester notes. Behind those notes are light amounts of highly roasted malts, molasses, chocolate and booze. Overall it is a bit dark fruity ester forward for my taste.

Pours black and oily with a large beige head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Hints of coffee, nuts, toffee and alcohol. Taste consist of the same elements from the aroma; roasted malts and cholcolate, then mixes of the others. Alcohol doesn’t reveal itself very much before the warmth rises up my throat. Slick and oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, some light coffee notes and wood. Flavour the same, smoke, lots of wood, alcohol, burnt malts, sweetness, red wine. Boozy, roasted - decent body for a porter.

Clear black body with thin light brown head. Malty boozy nose. Alcohol is not as present in the taste as I expected. Nothing roasty about it, very interesting. Rich malt taste with slight sweetness, and a ton of chocolate... finished like brownies. Very nice.

Very nice rich malty flavours. Its strong with lots of alcohol, that matches the rich body. This is a very good beer!!!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2012
10% bottle #933 at home from the brewer. Pours a beautiful black colour with a fair brown head. Aroma of roasty malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and alcohol. Just a little sweet. Similar flavours with a juicy tropical fruit hoppiness alongside roasty malt and dark chocolate. A little sweet again to finish and nicely bitter. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel. A long alcohol hum rounds this off nicely. Lovely.

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
25 cl bottle @ Cardinal. Bottle #1241. Pours black with no head at all, just a tiny tiny ring with small bubbles. Strong aromas of dried fruits, and somewhat like portwine and strong alcohol. This ale surprised me, as I was prepared to drink something strong, but it’s so smooth, and it’s something completely different than the aromas that you’ll get. Really complex and just jummy!
